Seventeen years TO THE DAY of the first time it was ever done, Tony Hawk lands his famous 900!

Tony Hawk was the first to ever land a 900 at the 1999 X-Games. This was on June 27th, 1999. While He has done the trick several times since, last being in 2011, he once again attempted the trick. Seventeen years later, at age 48, he was able to land a 900. He indicates that this could be his last.

If you're wondering what exactly a 900 is:

The 900 is a 2½-revolution (900 degrees) aerial spin performed on a skateboard ramp. While airborne, the skateboarder makes two-and-a-half turns about their longitudinal axis, thereby facing the other way when coming down than before. It is considered one of skateboarding's most technically demanding tricks.
